The personal finance industry has taken notice of the award-winning highly informative personal finance by the Debt Free Guys who focus on for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer community as their target underserved audience. Debt Free Guys is the passionate and often funny collaboration of David Auten and John Schneider III who share their story of how as a gay couple they use to live beyond their previous means and accumulated $51,000 of consumer debt. They woke up to the disadvantage that put them in and decided to do something about it. They strategized together a plan to pay off that $51,000 and as a result Debt Free Guys was born. In addition to writing they host audio and video interviews of experts in an array of fields that also focus personal finance in its many forms from managing your money to career tips that help you earn more too.
They have a solid understanding that there’s more to life than money. They share that you need to give money the importance it deserves, but warn that you should not make it more important than it actually is. Your freedom from debt provides financial freedom to do more with what you have. After paying of debt and living within your means – it’s like getting a raise. You have more money to invest in your long-term financial health providing you security and peace of mind. Having fun is critical to a balanced life and paying for that fun should be balanced as well.
